Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-10-30

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-10-30
The Wizards have become known as the team that simply can't stay healthy. But the good news for the Wizards is that the player who was the least healthy last season appears to be healed.

Center Etan Thomas is back in the starting lineup after missing all 82 regular-season games and the playoffs following open-heart surgery.

"I'm really happy to be back because a lot of people counted me out when this first happened," Thomas said following the Wizards' season opener at Verizon Center on Wednesday. "We didn't get the result that we wanted but we're positive about the season."

Wizards coach Eddie Jordan is going to lean on Thomas this season primarily because center Brendan Haywood is out for at least the next four months following surgery on his wrist.

"He's been given the green light and we're going to approach it that way," Jordan said. "We're glad to have Etan back because of what he brings. He gives us more physicality and that's what we're going to want out of him nightly."

Thomas will get a very good test Saturday in Rasheed Wallace when the Sixers play at Detroit.

NETS 95, WIZARDS 85: The Wizards got double-figure scoring from six players, but it wasn't enough to hold off the Nets and Vince Carter, who led all players with 21 points. The Wizards shot only 37 percent from the field, but their porous defense allowed the Nets to shoot 47 percent in their season opener.
